The Love of Tourism
Kristin Dunne considers herself a guardian of a 125 kilometres of beautiful coastline in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. She will present on their transition to community-led destination management, and working with their community to uncover the special and authentic DNA that drives their destination brand. Their plan “Te Ha Tapoi| The Love of Tourism” unites visitors and locals in a shared vision to regenerate the Coastal Bay of Plenty for future generations. Their Destination Management plan is based on indigenous wisdom and shows the transformative power tourism has to regenerate our regions, to the benefit of future generations.
